Cal basketball won’t play at Kansas because of anti-LGBTQ law

While the NCAA is threatening to remove all March Madness games from the state of North Carolina until 2022 because of the anti-LGBTQ HB2 law, the Cal basketball program is also taking a political stance.

The Golden Bears announced a home-and-home series with the Kansas Jayhawks has been put on ice because Cal will not play in Lawrence due to the controversial “religious freedom” law which allows student groups on campus to discriminate based on a difference of beliefs.

The report comes from Peter Hancock of the Lawrence Journal-World.

Due to California state law, no public school or college can travel to Kansas as of Jan. 1. The state’s travel ban also includes  Mississippi, North Carolina, and Tennessee.

That could lead to scheduling nightmares for the NCAA Tournament and NIT, so we’ll have to see where this goes.
